Review: MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation

There was some interest in how this foundation performs, so I went to the next MAC and got a big ass sample. *g* First thing - no NW15.. Just an NC15.

So I got an NC15.

A quick swatch.

As you can see, it doesn't really match. This right there knocks it out for me, but of course I reviewed it nonetheless. :-) Not everyone wears NW15.

Now, before I talk about it, two photos of me wearing it:

What MAC says:

An innovative, gorgeous new formula, full of extraordinary benefits. Its lightweight lush texture feeds skin instantly with mineral-rich nourishing hydration, all day long. The uniquely creamy fluid, ideal for dry skin, blends beautifully, providing light-to-medium buildable coverage. Features our 77-Mineral Complex including Shea Butter, emollients and conditioning extracts to keep the face soft and supple.

So what do I say??

I can agree with most of what they say. It is moisturizing and a little product goes a long way. I'd also agree that it has light-to-medium coverage. 

What I don't think it does, at least not to my satisfaction is blending into the skin. It kinda sat on my face and I felt the need to set it with powder. I never had the feeling it truly blended in. Something I hated.

Long story short. Nothing for me. Even if they would have my skintone, I wouldn't buy it. I need my foundation to "melt" into my skin, like the Bourjois one does. There are so many different foundations out there which do an amazing job, one can be picky. Definitely get a sample first, one always should when it comes to foundation.

Did you get it? Like it? I hope this was helpful!

Thank you very much for getting a sample and writing a review! I wanted to say it looks great on you, but reading that it doesn't blend into the skin is of course disappointing. Seems we'll stick with the Bourjois ;-)
